POLITICS: Racial Hardball and George Allen

First of all, blogospheric congratulations are in order for QandO's Jon Henke, who has been brought aboard the George Allen Senate re-election campaign as "Netroots Coordinator". Jon gets quickly to work with a post explaining how Democrats threatened to cut off contributions to historically black colleges to pressure the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund not to give Allen an award for his work on legislation benefitting the colleges. After all, it just wouldn't fit the narrative to have Senator Allen honored with a "Thurgood Marshall Award" for his actual record, as opposed to his Democratic/media caricature.

I still like everything I see about George Allen. He is my guy for President until someone can convince me there is a better, more Conservative candidate.
